The fragrance of this luscious English rose just knocks me off my feet, so very strong and what, in my mind, is a classic smell of rose flowers. I also love the dark crimson color of its velvety petals – such a stunning beauty. I am currently the proud caretaker of just one of these plants, since my local nursery only had just this one remaining in this stock at the end of the year when I bought it. I will have to visit the store in a couple of weeks to see if they might have more of this gorgeous rose in stock. Long live Munstead Wood!
